Brushstroke Gradient Swash Down


Each week a new story is enjoyed and explored. Children are invited to respond to key questions, supporting speaking, listening and understanding.

Our book inspired craft activities encourage children to embrace their creativity whilst developing  fine motor skills, preparing them as future writers.

Playdoh mats, roleplay, sensory trays - The Reading Den provides stimulating and educational opportunities for children to immerse themselves in the story.
